When it comes to eyeshadows, I am always most drawn to golden, bronze and coppery shades because they really make my blue eyes pop! Some of my all time favourites for this already are MAC Twinks (as seen here), MAC Tempting, MAC Amber Lights (as seen here), Urban Decay Baked and Smog (as seen used here and here) and MAC Woodwinked and All That Glitters. But I recently discovered a new shade that I am totally hooked on now. Let me introduce you to MAC Antiqued!
MAC Antiqued is a rusty, coppery brown with a veluxe pearl finish eyeshadow. The texture is super smooth so it applies like a dream, it is highly pigmented, versatile and it is great for both day or night makeup looks. It’s been my go-to shade these recent winter months because it’s such a beautiful warm deep colour that even on it’s own easily creates a stunning coppery smokey eye.
Here are some pictures of a makeup look I created recently using MAC Antiqued eyeshadow and some other products I am loving at the moment.
FACE: Paula’s Choice Soft Neutral Cream Concealer, applied underneath the eyes // Burberry Fresh Glow Nude Radiance (No. 1) lightly applied onto cheekbones, forehead and bridge of the noise // Then I applied the Burberry Fresh Glow Foundation in Beige (No.26) all over the face with a Sigma Stippling brush (link) // Finished off with Bourjois Delice De Poudre Bronzing Powder (in 52) to contour the face // and MAC blush in Melba on the apples of the cheeks //
EYES: MAC Brule eyeshadow applied to the brow bone and to the tear duct // MAC Antiqued eyeshadow applied all over the lid and blended quite highly into the crease for a nice simply smokey eye // Estee Lauder Pure Color Intense Eyeliner in Blackened Black applied to the waterline // Curled my eyelashes with MAC Full Lash Curler (tutorial on how to do this here) // and applied two coats of Givency Noir Couture Volume Mascara in Black Taffeta onto my lashes – I’m loving this mascara at the moment! // and on my LIPS: AERIN’s Essential Rose Lip Balm.
I just can’t get enough of this coppery smokey eye look, and using MAC Antiqued makes it such a breeze to do! This shade is now definitely in my top 10 MAC eyeshadow list & you can check out my other top 15 favourite MAC eyeshadows here. Do you like this kind of bronze, coppery look and have you tried MAC Antiqued eyeshadow before?
